    I'm starting to see issues caused by customers having thousands of piddly emails in their main inbox. I'm not concerned about the disk usage, rather the number of files that have to be stat'd when the inbox is viewed.

    Does anyone know of a way to limit the number of emails in a folder or, if that isn't possible, the size of an individual folder?

    Cheers,

    Garan.

    There is no other solution than a script to check the folders every night that sends an alert if the number of files is over a certain limit. :)

    Thanks. I'll bear it in mind but at the moment I'm simply shouting at my customers as the ones with the silly sized mailboxes are the ones who are complaining about performance! :)
